Silverware and kitchen tools and utensils are items that are hard to imagine as being different. It today's age, these cooking tools have been enhanced to be as efficient as possible, and while some of them are constantly being done-up to combine multiple tools or be as compact as possible, their general principles haven't actually changed much. The designs of spoons, knives, and forks have actually been fundamentally the same for over a century.

Ancient kitchen equipment, however, looked much different than it does today. Often, they were made from materials available at the time, or had intricate designs that seem superfluous today. It is surprising, though, that some of kitchen utensils actually existed so long ago. Vote up the ancient spatulas, ovens, and strainers that are the most impressive.
